The Usual Questions
What are the class fees?This class is donation-based. That means that you can pay as much or as little as you’d like. Cash donations are accepted at the end of class and are not mandatory.
When should I arrive?In order to avoid disrupting class (and causing yourself undue stress), plan to arrive on time (5-10 minutes prior to the class start time) to sign-in and prepare for a great practice.
What should I wear?Wear comfortable attire that will stretch with you and allow for a full range of body movements (yoga pants or shorts and a fitted t-shirt or yoga top). Avoid wearing clothing that is too baggy. Typically yoga is practiced with bare feet.
What should I bring?To practice yoga, all you really need is you. To make your practice more comfortable, we suggest you bring a yoga mat, a towel and/or a blanket, water, and sunscreen.

Kristen’s Yoga Philosophy
“Yoga is all about balance, mindfulness, and tranquility. I love that Yoga, with its attention to breath and alignment, can draw focus away from a busy, chaotic day and toward a calming moment – as one moves the body through poses that require balance and concentration. I like teaching others to move in a way that brings awareness of abilities and limitations and encourages peace within them. I believe Yoga is best when incorporated into your entire day – not only on the mat, but as you go through life. My classes focus on traditional poses with a little flow and variety to keep it fun.”
